    Jeffrey Selingo was on the Getting In podcast recently. A good 55 minutes breaking down the major points of his book and predictions for the college application process post-pandemic.

    Thank you!

    Trying to learn as much as I can because I've been told our counselors do nothing at all to help.

    Default Kindle book - Who Gets in and Why by Jeff Selingo - $1.99

    Selingo cohosts a podcast called FutureU that’s “inside baseball” for Higher Ed professionals but he talks about his book in one podcast and there are other episodes that might be of interest to this board. I listen since it’s my profession. Episodes are only ~20mins.

    Mom to two amazing DDs ('07 & '09) and a fur baby.

    Gluten free since Nov '11 after non-celiac gluten sensitive diagnosis. Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.
